      Graphical Abstract

      Population dynamics can explain the maintenance, dominance, and extinction of stem cells and their progeny, through careful use of mathematical models. In the haematopoietic stem cell niche, competition between healthy and leukemic stem cells impacts cancer incidence and progression. Grey arrows: cell production by differentiation; red dashed arrows: possible regulatory interactions.

      Graphical Abstract

      AGEs induce syndecan 4(synd4) shedding from late EPCs. The synd4 was an important receptor on the cell surface to mediate cell migration. (A) Schematic showing the antibody against the cytoplasmic epitope of synd4. (B) Representative immunoblots showing synd4 expression in late EPCs incubated with 200 μg/l AGEs for 12 h using antibody against cyt-synd4. The fragment of about 10 kDa was increased, representing the residual fragment of synd4 after shedding; in parallel, the full length fragment (40 kDa) of synd4 was decreased. N=3. (C) Representative flow cytometric showing that surface ext-synd4 expression was decreased in CD34+ PMNC from T2DM patients compared with those from controls. N=6. (D) Late EPCs were treated with Lv null, Lv si-synd4, or Lv null together with AGEs, and their migration was examined in an SDF-1 gradient (0-5 ng/ml) by fluorescence microscopy. Forty cells of each group were selected randomly, tracked and analyzed. Inhibition of synd4 reduces the migration of late EPCs. N=3.

      Graphical Abstract. Reactive Oxygen Species Impair the Function of CD90+ Hematopoietic Progenitors Generated from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells

      Elevated levels of ROS correlates with reduced functionality in hPSC-derived hematopoietic progenitors. Strategies aimed at reducing the level of ROS specifically benefit the more primitive hPSC-derived hematopoietic cell fraction resulting in increased functionality in terms of growth potential.

      Table of Content Abstract

      Organ engineering offers tremendous promise for regenerative medicine on multiple fronts, including transplants for patients and improved preclinincal diagnostic modeling. This review encompasses integrative approaches in engineering in an accessible manner. In addition to its core subject, improved culture systems are discussed which could benefit biologists across fields, not just stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.

      The signaling through lysophosphatidic acid receptor 1 (LPA1) and 3 (LPA3) in bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) is an important determinant in multiple myeloma (MM) progression. LPA3-silenced MSCs exhibit pro-senescent phenotypes and promote MM progression and tumor-related angiogenesis via transdifferentiation into tumor-associated fibroblasts (TAFs) and FGF2 production. Conversely, LPA1-silenced MSCs exhibit anti-senescent phenotypes and delay MM progression. These results suggest that LPA1/3 axis is a crucial regulator of formation of tumor microenvironment and a novel conceptual target for MM therapy.

      Legend to graphical abstract

      Model for PrPC action on Notch and stemness in neural progenitors:

      PrPC positively regulates the expression of Notch ligands and that of the Notch receptors and its ablation compromises Notch signalling;

      Proper Notch signalling supports N-cadherin-mediated cell-cell contacts as well as the expression of NSC markers and exerts a positive feedback action on PrPC;

      Downstream from PrPC, Notch signalling additionally upregulates the expression of EGFR, which, when activated, negatively regulates both PrPC and Notch.

      Thus, PrPC, the Notch pathway and EGFR belong to a gene regulatory network, whose imbalance may shift towards “more stemness” (higher Notch activity induces higher PrPC expression and vice-versa) or “less stemness” (EGFR activation dampens Notch signalling and PrPC expression).
